What is ARTC?
The ARTC Annual Meeting (Asian Refining Technology Conference) is a two day, dual stream technical conference hosted annually by the World Refining Association (WRA).
As part of the international portfolio of WRA events hosted annually in Europe, Africa and the Americas, ARTC is now in its 20th year and has become the leading refining and petrochemical conference in the region.
Each year, we issue a call for papers to refiners, EPCs, catalyst companies, technology licensors, additive providers, software vendors and general equipment suppliers and contractors around the globe. We work closely with the ARTC Advisory Board, made up of senior refiner professionals from across the region who are tasked with grading the various technical papers received.
Only the highest graded, most timely and original papers presented for the first time in the region are selected to be part of the two day programme. The programme is also packed with thought provoking keynote addresses, high-level panel discussions and in-depth case studies.
Focus on Indonesia
Back in November 2016, Indonesia’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources announced that it will allow private investment in refineries as part of a new set of rules and regulations aimed at revitalising the sector.
With this opening up of the refining sector in Indonesia, we realise it is more important than ever to bring together and provide a platform for investors, refiners and technology suppliers from across the globe to meet and set the agenda for the Indonesian refinery market now and for the future.
With an agenda featuring 16 more refiner speakers than in 2016, as well as a truly international delegation with refiners attending from Pertamina, Rosneft, Petronas, Bharat Oman, S-Oil, Reliance Industries, Indian Oil, NISOC and Bangchak, ARTC 2017 is committed to delivering an informative, varied and interactive event for all those currently working in, or looking at Indonesia as a future investment opportunity.
We facilitate knowledge sharing and nurturing of business partnerships within the oil and gas sector. We do so by providing face-to-face opportunities to network including conferences, exhibitions and networking evenings; independent analysis and creation of industry reports and webinars. We create events that matter.
